Refraction Series
Canada / 8:00 / 2008 / silent / colour
"Refraction Series" offers an experimental approach to optics, using simple materials and techniques to generate a range of images of pure light and color in motion. The film is inspired by the ideas of early scientists who investigated the nature of light and visual perception, particularly the experiments and writings of the tenth-century Arab mathematician/scientist Ibn al-Haytham and the English mathematician/scientist Isaac Newton.
